I have had no difficulty with my MacBook Pro (Intel processor) other than getting a warning message which I simply ignore. And I have done more than just open the notebook since my goal was to edit it for usage by colleagues that have access to version 6 but not version 7. But having said this, I have encountered some difficulty after opening a notebook created in version 7 on my MacBook with version 6 on a Windows based machine. Opening seemed to work OK (getting the expected warning message). But attempts to edit the message on the Windows machine caused Mathematica version 6 to crash. I haven't yet taken time to determine what is causing the crash.
